Education & Spiritual Growth

Because faith is a journey that begins at birth and culminates with death, Eden Church offers educational and spiritual growth opportunities for all ages. Every week at Eden, you’ll find all kinds of activities to nurture mind, body, and spirit — from retreats, yoga classes, and service projects to music programs, labyrinth walks, study groups. Our upcoming programs and events are shown on our Events Calendar. Here’s a short overview of our offerings:

Infant and toddler care is offered during worship and on an as-requested basis for other Eden events. Contact the church office to request childcare.

Church School for Children and Youth meets on Sunday mornings, except for Communion Sunday, the first Sunday of the month. On Communion Sunday, we offer a special children’s sermon during worship, allowing the children to rejoin their families for the sacrament while our teens assist worship leaders throughout the service.

For our K-12th grade classes, we use the new Feasting on the Word Curriculum, which introduces children to core biblical stories and nurtures spiritual growth through music, the visual arts, theatre, movement, and play. The Eden ministerial team, along with our youth leaders and 8th-12th grade students, has developed a uniquely Eden Youth curriculum.

Confirmation is a nine-month hands-on faith formation program for teens. Teens meet semi-monthly with the pastor and youth advisors to learn about and participate in all aspects of church life before deciding whether to become members of Eden church. In the spring, teens attend a popular retreat with other UCC confirmation classes.

Adult Education includes mid-week classes, Bible Study, occasional Sunday workshops, and seasonal offerings to provide participants with an introduction to cutting-edge theology, opportunities for faith reflection on current events, and encouragement to explore and express beliefs and values in an open and caring environment.

Small Groups are an opportunity to reflect and discuss among friends about what matters to you when it comes to your faith and spiritual practices. Fall sessions are open to all. Please contact Pastor Pepper for more information.

Retreats, Labyrinth Walks, and Spiritual Direction are offered by our ministers and community partners. Monthly Labyrinth Walks will be held on the first Friday of the month (rain or shine) beginning at 7:00 p.m.>
